When it comes to Activeworlds I see the community like an extended family, sometimes its dysfunctional but it still remains a family in my heart. Sure we disagree, have different opinions, agendas but i believe in the end we all strive for what we see as a better AW. Too many times i have watched people pour their hearts into projects, Events and builds only to be unrecognized and unappreciated.
So This post is to say Thank you to all you unsung heros, hard working citizens that gave of their valuable time and for giving of your heart and mind to the community we know as Activeworlds. Those that hosted events for years and saw the end of the events due to lack of participation. Those that Passed away leaving us some wonderful builds and memories and those still remaining with us fighting to bring the community back to a cohesive and flourishing state.
Events come and go, citizens as well but what they achieved, created and shared will remain in the hearts and minds of those they touched. Thank you Event hosts, Builders, community leaders, chatters and lurkers all the same. Each group and each person has contributed to what became one of the longest existing online 3d community called Activeworlds.
Last but not least a big thank you to the programers, visionaries and staff of Activeworld in the many forms it has taken through the years since its inception back in 1995. Without them we the community would never had AW as our home on the Internet or the friends / Family and the community we love so much.
